    "As a parent, my experience with SAMS has been quite an interesting journey. Starting with the principal, he is very motivated and concerned about student achievement, and he has and open door policy. He is up-to-date wiith materials and software that enhances student success. The staff, just like at ANY other school are highly qualified and trained to teach students who want to learn, and not just come to school to practice how to pretend to be an adult when away from the supervision of their parents. Parent involvement is essential, and rewarding for the student. My son is entering his 8th grade year and we are ver excited about it. I've learned that if you are looking to be successful in anything that is waht you are going to get."

    "AND I QUOTE, St. Andrews is a sorry excuse for a school and education. I attend there now and am not satisified with the education that is taught at this school and with the faculty. I have been here for three years and have NEVER enjoyed this so called learning environment.I'm so sick of teachers forever accusing us students without letting us explain our reasons or for the wrong thing and thinking their always right. Teachers tell us to give them respect but they dont give us no respect. You got to give respect to get it. This is how i feel!!|1875979|A|2014/10/12|00960606|other|2010-05-26|St. Andrews Middle is a poor example of Richland One! My son attended there for a little over a month and I had no choice but to pull him from the school and move him! The only positive experience he had there was that his orchestra teacher was really wonderful! In advanced placement classes, his assignments were on lessons my son was taught 2 years prior in Lexington District Two! And the fact that St. Andrews is a uni-race school, is awful! My son was one of 9 white children out of 900 or so students! He was changing to try to fit in during a difficult transition period from elementary to middle school anyway! I had to move my son to Hand Middle. He received an excellent education there and he was actually challenged! St. Andrews Middle needs some drastic improvements to even compare to other schools in Richland One!|1875980|A|2014/10/12|00960606|student|2009-05-13|I am a current studen at ST Andrews and i have to get my dad to come up to the school and beg the teacher to give extra work to help fix my grade because they don't listen to the students and they don't know how to teach.....|0875981|A|2014/10/12|00960606|former student|2007-06-13|I graduated in may and I believe that this school has gotten better. There is a more mixture of races here now, and the education is pretty good. Most of the teachers I had though are leaving|4875982|A|2014/10/12|00960606|former student|2006-01-22|St. Andrews at one point was a very good school. A number of years ago, I attended there, and we had a mix of every race, and no major problems, now the school has become almost only a one race school and I think that is sad, because I would have liked my son to attend there, but I know how he would be treated. I think things need to change for the better, not for the worse.|1876149|A|2014/10/12|02177013|parent|2013-12-30|North Springs elementary has done quite a bit of damage to my daughters self esteem after only 2 years.The majority of students at this school are African American, and my child (Caucasian), experienced terrible racial segregation while attending this school along with countless acts of bullying. . It is hard to explain to such a young child why people are picking on her because of the color of her skin. She began to fear going to school, became nervous and depressed, and often came home in tears due to the negative atmosphere she had to endure. The staff did very little...even after numerous concerns were brought to their attention. They actually seemed to brush it off. Needless to say, we pulled our daughter out of the school after we had finally had enough and will NEVER look back!! This particular school goes much deeper then the average school teasing scenario. It will take years to erase the damage done to her here. If you fall into the minority category for this school, I urge you to look elsewhere for their education. It is really sad that any type of racism still exists in 2013. In a nutshell, North springs elementary was a huge disappointment!|1876150|A|2014/10/12|02177013|parent|2011-07-05|My child must have went to a different school from the other reviewers. While she had very positive results from the IEP program, everything else was lacking. Communication breakdowns were a constant thing between the teachers and myself and bullying was apparently out of control. It got so bad that I complained to the district, "
